Ashura Detainee Navid Kamran Returned to Evin Prison


The Appeals Court had upheld the 33 month imprisonment sentence and the 75 lashes for Ashura detainee Seyyed Navid Kamran last week.

According to JARS, Judge Pirabbas, the presiding judge of the 26th branch of the Revolutionary Court, had issued the verdict. Kamran was informed of the court’s decision after being summoned to the Shahid Moghaddas Prosecutor’s Office a few days ago.

He was charged with conspiracy and participating in gatherings in order to commit crimes against national security, and disturbing the public order. During last year’s presidential elections, Kamran was an activist for the website of “Association of Mousavi Supporters.” The group’s name was later changed to the “Association of Green Movement Supporters.”
